LSU Tigers | SEC (West)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1150), Win Conference (+2200)
SSA Model Pick: None
LSU is a top 25 team according to our power numbers but our model has them picked 5th in the SEC West. With only 10 starers back and a new offensive coordinator, it will be a challenging year for the Tigers. They’re a long shot to win their first conference title since 2011.

Win Total Analysis
7 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Low Confidence)
Do you remember that last time LSU won fewer than seven games? The year was 1999. It’s crazy to think that a program with this much talent will win fewer than 8 games, but that’s what our model is calling for. A tough opening game against Miami from the ACC and difficult conference schedule could result in LSU’s worst record this century.
